What’s the most important thing for you to have in your life? Someboy mentions hard-work, others suggest
knowledge, love and luck.
If you arrange the 26 English letters alphabetically(按字母表的顺序)and use numbers to represent each of them,
for example, 1 for a, 2 for b, 3 for c…, you can change an English word into a number. So hard-work becomes
8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11=98, meaning 98 is its mark; knowledge: 11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5=96, while love
:12+15+22+5=54, and luck : 12+21+3+11=47, a small mark. None of these words can give one a full mark. What
about money or prayer(祈祷)? They can’t , either.
Then what else? Don’t be worried. You can always find an answer to a problem in your life, when you change
your way of looking at things or doing things, or your attitude(态度).Yes, attitude is the word. See for
yourself: attitude:1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5=100，a full mark.
Different attitudes lead to different courses of life. Most times people hope for a better life. It is possible
that one will have a change for the betterr after one has changed one’s attitude.
When you change your manner and became friendly towards others, you’ll meet more smiling faces towards you.In
the same way, if you take a positive(积极地)attitude towards failure(失败),you’ll find it’s also rewarding
though it has caused you losses.

“When can I get a cell phone?” The answer is when your parents think you need one, though many kids seem to
be getting them around age 12 or 13. Some younger kids may have them because their parents see it as a matter
of safety and convenience. For example, a kid can call mom and dad when sports practice is over. And a cell
phone can give kids almost instant access(快捷通道) to their parents if something goes wrong or they need help.
It can give parents quick access to their kids so they can check on them and make sure they’re OK.
If you do get a cell phone, make some rules with your parents, such as how many minutes you’re allowed to
spend on the phone, when you can use your phone, when the phone must be turned off, and what you will do if
someone calls you too often, and so on.
You’ll also have to learn to take care of the phone in your life. Keep it charged(充电) and store it in the
safe place so it doesn’t get lost. And whatever you do, don’t use it in the bathroom. I know someone who
dropped her phone in the toilet!

Every morning, the newspaper chief editor(主编) holds a meeting with the reporters. They discuss the main
events(事件) of the day. Reporters are then sent to cover the events.
As soon as the reporters know what to write about, they get down to work. They telephone people and fix a
time for a face-to-face interview with them. Sometimes they do telephone interviews. Checking information is
very important. They go to the newspaper’s own library to look up any information that they need. This is
called “doing one’s homework”.
At the same time, the picture editor decides which photographs will be used for the next day’s paper. All
the people who work on a newspaper must be able to work fast. Reporters have to stop working on one story and
start working at once on the important new one. They must find out the new information as quickly as possible.
Later in the day, everything is put together at the news desk. Reporters return, type their stories into the
computer and hand them to the editor.
The chief editor decides which will be the most important story on the front page. Sometimes this will have
to be changed if something more important happens late in the day. Other editors read the stories which the
reporters have written and make any necessary changes.
Finally, there is no more time left for adding new stories, and the time for printing(印刷) the newspaper has
come. This is done on fast-moving printing machines. The newspapers are then delivered(发送) by truck, plane or
rail. Speed is important. People want to buy the latest newspaper; nobody wants to buy yesterday’s.

it into the house to eat later. The apples had been on the ground and were often dirty so I wasn’t always
happy that Prana had brought them into the house.
It was an autumn day in America, but it was very cold. A big snow fell and we had not done anything for its
coming. On that special day, Prana went outside and I watched him through the window. I noticed that he was
madly digging(挖) holes and bringing the apples to the ground so they could be seen above the snow. I did not
know why he was doing this. He seemed to want to do something special.
When I called him back, he had his usual one apple in his mouth. About five minutes later, I looked outside.
